Watching the Sea of Galilee

The Sea is at its lowest since 1972. The entire nation of Israel prays for rain, no matter what their religious persuasion is. We depend upon the former and latter rains to keep us alive here. <a href=”″>Read more here on Israel National News</a>

No Relief

I know and am a witness, says the LORD. Jeremiah 29:23 Kay Wilson is also a witness. Giving testimony at a Stand With Us event in Sussex England, she relives her experience with Palestinian terror. Please do not say, “Oh not again enough!” This is an unforgettable account of innocence lost as she witnessed the murder of a Christian friend right in front of her. Yet she survived  against all odds.  I want all who watch this to understand, that NOTHING has changed.  I pray her voice will be heard or she just crying in the wilderness? For newcomers, here is a little back ground. The Palestinian Authority has not changed its agenda since it started in 1964.  PA President Mahmood Abbas, 81, a Holocaust denier, inherited a tradition of tyranny. His predecessor, Yasser Arafat, was also President of the PA for life. Nothing has changed. There are no free elections in the Palestinian Authority. In 2005 I, Meridel Rawlings, did extensive research on abuse in the PA. Living in Jerusalem, I consulted with Israelis, Palestinians and Christian Arabs.  …

Where is the LORD?

The earth is reeling today under the threat of terror. Multitudes are numb with grief and pain, prayer for them perhaps is just mute silence. Let those of us who are quiet and at ease, pick up the slack, and remember the suffering in loving prayer. Today the ‘valley of decision’ is crowded with humanity from every nation. We can remember them. Here’s how.

Happy New Year

Dear friends of Jay and Meridel: It is with a profound sense of gratefulness that we send you these heart felt greetings for a blessed 2016. We are presently working in Kathmandu Nepal with Daniel to complete the film we began over two years ago on the ‘behind the scene’ work of CHANGE ACTION NEPAL. David received the name of ‘CAN’ while filming our Nepali friend Indira. She is our hero because of her wise and loving work of rehabilitating trafficked children. Our sons. David, Chris, Josh and Daniel have joined their parents in getting this story out to the world. We desire to keep you posted as this journey unfolds from the roof top of the world. Our first course of action is to film the earth quake damage from April 2015 and the shocking upsurge in human trafficking due to increased poverty and want. We are counting on your prayers and gifts to make the difference that is waiting to be made in countless lives. Please stay with us
